Thistle Express Swindon is located in the town centre, opposite the new commercial quarter. Day guests have great restaurants and shops on the hotel’s doorstep, and some fascinating attractions, including a locomotive museum, nearby.
Range of Restaurants – There are some great restaurants in the vicinity, including all you can eat Brazilian buffets from Rios Brazil. If Italian makes your taste buds tingle you’ve two family-run choices: DaVinci Italian Restaurant or Fratello’s. Other options in the area include Chinese, Thai, Indian, Greek, Portuguese, and good old-fashioned fish and chips at The Trident Fish Bar.
Steaming Into History – There are few machines people are fonder of than steam engines, and if that’s up your alley then you should visit STEAM, The Museum of GWR (Great Western Railway). The locomotive museum is child-friendly and suitable for all ages, commemorating the industrial heritage of Swindon
Lydiard Park – To the west is Lydiard Park, a Palladian home with 18th century interiors and a walled garden. A wonderfully peaceful spot, with woods beside a lake, it’s great for both history buffs and those who just like relaxing with a gentle stroll.
The Brunel Shopping Centre – Steps away from the hotel is the Brunel Shopping Centre, where you can buy clothes, jewellery, and plenty more, with a variety of dining options (including a cake shop) nearby.
